A hidden historical gem in the heart of Purbeck, this is a truly local museum. Telling the story of the area’s ball clay industry, it’s a fascinating way to tunnel into Purbeck’s past and learn how industrious clay miners were, right back to the 17th Century.

A great little place to stop if you’re having a day out on the Swanage Railway (Norden station).

Entrance to the museum is a minimum £1 donation.
